Librivox recording of The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas.

The Count of Monte Cristo (French: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo) is an adventure novel by Alexandre Dumas, père. It is often considered, along with The Three Musketeers, as Dumas's most popular work. The writing of the work was completed in 1844. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from the plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet.

The story takes place in France, Italy, islands in the Mediterranean and the Levant during the historical events of 1815–1838 (from just before the Hundred Days through the reign of Louis-Philippe of France). The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. It is primarily concerned with themes of justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness, and is told in the style of an adventure story. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Subject: There is an Alternative
I thought I would let people know that if they prefer a SOLO version of this audiobook, I have recently completed the project and it can be found on this site - Librivox and is listed as Version 3. The whole book is ready by one narrator, and I thought that seeing the reviews below that this might be preferable for some. The link for this version is http://archive.org/details/count_montecristo_1308_librivox

Well, sir, I won't be telling you that you write good English. Please learn the difference between "their", "there" and "they're" and then come back and correct your review, preferably adding some punctuation. Then I shall be able to read it.

Did you notice that some of the chapters had alternate readings ? Inresponse to difficulties some listeners had, other Librivox readers have volunteered them time to give a choice .

Reviewer: picfixer - 1.00 out of 5 stars - July 30, 2011
Subject: Great book poorly presented.
I agree with the other reviewers. Don't waste Your time with this one.

Reviewer: Kristingj - 2.00 out of 5 stars2.00 out of 5 stars - July 29, 2011
Subject: A bit here and there
This book have been a favorite of mine for many years, but I have never read it in English, and decided I wanted to listen to it here. Unfortunatly it seems that the PL haven't done their job properly, because there are several chapters which have several issues. To many of the readers speak badly English, and several readers buthcer the French names. To many chapters have backround noise, speed readers(skipping-over-the-words-fast) and other issues that should have been easy enough to fix.

Edit: Chapter 115 cuts off very sudden, not really sure if it's actually finished or nor...

Subject: Proof that librivox is for the readers, not the listeners
The recordings of Ana Simão are proof of the Librivox philosophy that Librivox is for the readers, not the listeners. While I admire and appreciate Ms. Simão's generosity in volunteering her time to read for Librivox, I have to say I found her reading exceedingly difficult to understand, and very frustrating to listen to. It's like listening to someone who is unable to pronounce certain vowel sounds or combinations of letters. At times she sounds almost as if she speaks with a lisp. In some instances I had to give up trying to understand her reading and instead read the text online. If you have the patience to listen to several of her recordings you will began to better understand her reading, but it is still frustrating. Whenever I began listening to a new chapter and discovered it was not her reading, I thought, "Thank God!"

If you could let us know which chapters you found too loud we could see if they could be fixed if needed

Subject: Sorry to say
Different readers with different pronunciations of names made it confusing and some were very difficult to follow, sometimes style and quality of recording made chapters and sections difficult to understand.
If using earphones, a few chapters go from quiet to Very Loud, be aware.

Subject: To good a book
This Book is to good to be read the way it is on this reading. English is the second or third language for some of the readers. The diction is horrible in some chapters. Before you download listen to chapter 30 as a sample. There are a few outstanding readers but whole chapters are lost because of others.

Subject: Great Book...could use better readers
The book is fantastic. Be warned that there are many readers, some with thick accents that make some chapters harder to understand.
